The Dangers of Counterfeit Drugs

In recent years, the online sale of prescription drugs has become a growing industry. People choose to order their medications over the internet for many reasons, including convenience and significantly lower prices. Unfortunately, the risks of purchasing medication from an unknown source far outweigh any benefits. Many illegal websites sell counterfeited and potentially dangerous drugs while posing as legitimate pharmacies.

If you have been a victim of such fraudulent tactics, you may have grounds for legal action against the person or entity that has harmed you. The San Antonio product liability attorneys at Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers will work closely with you to pursue the compensation you deserve. Call us today at (210) 999-9999 for more information.

Counterfeit Drugs and Your Health

If you have a medical condition requiring medication, it is very important to take the correct drug and dosage. Counterfeit drugs can be dangerous in many ways, including the following:

  • Unknown ingredients may interact with foods you eat or your other medications
  • A higher or lower amount of the active ingredient than you need
  • Unpredictable and potentially life-threatening side effects
  • Lack of any active ingredients, resulting in a failure to treat your medical condition
  • Contaminants such as lead or mercury

Some counterfeit drugs are virtually identical to their legally manufactured counterparts. The best way to ensure that you are receiving the treatment you need is to purchase all of your medications from a medically licensed, FDA-approved pharmacy.
